The Brooklyn Latin School Reviews

The Brooklyn Latn School is definitely a great school, considering how eager teachers are willing to work with students. Although the majority of the school is one floor, it doesn't really matter because students need to constantly go up and down the stairs. One thing we don't have,however, is a library. In addition, students aren't allowed to go outside which kind of lacks our freedom. But other than that, The Brooklyn Latin School is great!

This school definitely has its flaws but I wouldn't choose to receive my education anywhere else. Since the school is small, the community is very tight-knit and supportive. Many students are able to build meaningful relationships with one another, teachers, and faculty members. The school is also distinct as it incorporates classical elements (seminar, declamation, and Latin) into the core curriculum. Additionally, the school places emphasis on public speaking so more reserved students may have a harder time adjusting. The only major downsides are the small and unclean facilities and the location of the school. The neighborhood surrounding the school isn't that safe and the bathrooms are usually dirty. Overall, I would highly recommend this school!
The Liberal Arts Curriculum is superb. I was learning about the myth of Laocoon in English and Latin, while analyzing the work of art featuring Laocoon in Art History, while studying Ancient Roman civilization in History. Brooklyn Latin also has a very tight-knit community that immediately recognizes people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. The Roman/Latin culture also enhances that sense of community. Students, teachers and administrators all take part in the nomenclature of calling students "discipuli", teachers "magistri", the bathroom "latrina", etc. The teachers above all care about the success and comfort of the students. You wouldn't believe how many teachers will pause class to talk about something not related to academics because that was where our minds were.
